TORONTO, August 3, 2018 — Blockchain Power Trust (“Blockchain Power” or the “Trust”) (TSXV: BPWR.UN) is pleased to announce that it has commissioned the Hashtank H40 from Green Revolution Cooling, Inc. (“GRC”) at one of its blockchain facilities in Romania. The H40 unit contains GRC’s proprietary liquid immersion cooling system that has been paired with Bitcoin specific integrated circuits that will deliver an estimated 6 Petahash against a maximum baseload consumption of 670 kW.
Mr. J. Colter Eadie, Chief Executive Officer of Blockchain Power, commented: “We are very pleased to announce the commissioning of the Hashtank H40, which brings our Bitcoin focused mining operations up to 27 PH/s. The installation of the Hashtank H40 gives the Trust both modular and traditional data center operations with a total baseload draw of 3 MW that are supplied by our own clean energy sources within Romania. We have gained invaluable insight in the development of this infrastructure and believe that we continue to be well positioned to take advantage of opportunities in the market in both renewable energy and blockchain infrastructure where we can bring value through our knowledge and insight at their convergence.”
